Book Review: W1CK by Michael Bunker PDF Print E-mail

As an Author, but more importantly, as a person, I have a definite respect for Michael Bunker. In fact, I actually fashioned a lot of what I did on my homestead/retreat after some of the things he suggested in his book ‘Surviving Off – Off Grid’; which by the way - he lives daily as a self-reliant man, and not just writes about. So, when asked to review his last work “The Last Pilgrims” I was honored; as I am this time around, to review his latest work ‘W1CK’, a prequel to ‘The Last Pilgrims’, which details how the collapse and crash actual happened 20 years later.wick book

Clay Richter is on a journey. Six years earlier he lost not only his wife, but his beautiful daughters in a horrific automobile accident prompting a move and what he had hoped was a new beginning to New York City.  Now he faces yet another travesty as he witnesses the devastation and destruction from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

As with most who find themselves in the face of disaster, he must now make a hard decision on what to do next. Surprisingly, Clay choses to become a refugee as he sets out on foot towards to Ithaca; the homestead he once knew; go-bag in tow, hoping to free himself of the mental holds of losing his family and the last six years.

The author vividly describes sights, sounds and characters prompting you to eagerly anticipate the next page …or pages as he intertwines events that are actually happening in our world today within the storyline. You find yourself periodically pausing to wonder “could this really happen?”  Then, continuing on, you realize that the answer is yes.  The ‘this can’t happen to me’ people hopefully will have a change of heart as they watch Clay enter the end of the world as he … and everyone else around him knows it,  witnessing first-hand how quickly our  way of life can changes forever.

If you haven’t read “The Last Pilgrims that’s okay, the beauty of these great books is order doesn’t matter … the ending results of these books do however. It is highly suggested you read both.

As a preparedness-minded person, I enjoy reading and watching mediums that help sharpen my mind and skills in the event that America as we know it declines.  Normalcy bias (that “can’t happen to me” mentality) has a strong hold on the citizens of the United States – reading “W1CK’ and “The Last Pilgrims” will open your eyes to what realistically can happen if we don’t’ keep a watchful eye. Or as the author describes it, ”the apocalyptic social, economic, and structural collapse of the Western civilization’.
